Colby Rasmus snapped out of a slump by going 4- for-5 with two triples, three RBI and two runs scored, pacing the Cardinals over the Rockies and a struggling Ubaldo Jimenez, 10-3, to open a three-game series. Rasmus, hitless in 20 at-bats coming in, highlighted a 19-hit attack by the Cardinals in their ninth win in 11 games. Albert Pujols chipped in two hits and drove in a pair for the victors. Jake Westbrook (5-3) was credited with the win in the minimum five innings, yielding three runs on five hits. Jimenez (0-5) was struck for six runs on 12 hits in his six-inning start to remain winless. Colorado has lost four straight and seven of eight overall.
